If you wear soft contact lenses, these must be removed before your start this treatment.
Always wash your hands before use and ensure the safety strip on the bottom of the outer cap is intact.
Remove the cap from the bottle and tilt your head back. Gently pull your lower eyelid down to form a ‘pocket’ between your eyelid and eye.
With your other hand, hold the bottle between your thumb and middle finger, turn the bottle upside down, close to the eye. Try to not touch the eye with the nozzle.
Apply just enough pressure to the bottle to dispense one to two drops. Blink a few times to help spread the solution evenly across the eye.
If you have been advised to apply the solution to both eyes, repeat the above process for the other eye.
Replace the cap and wash your hands.
